Satin on trim – Paint Talk – Professional Painting Contractors Forum

“I have had many customers this year request satin to be used on the trim instead of semi- gloss or high gloss. I like the look of the satin finish especially against earth tones. Just wondering if others have had the same customer request more frequently this year.”¬†View the entire conversation.

Satin on trim – Paint Talk – Professional Painting Contractors Forum

We typically like tweaking the paint sheens a bit when painting trim and doors, some more than others. In the Glidden Professional Diamond 350 line, we mix 50/50, semi-matte to semi-gloss (equal parts) to come up with a sheen in between. The semi matte is too close to flat and the semi gloss is too shiny for some applications. Other products are mixed 2 parts of one and 1 part of another to achieve unique sheen levels.

    Eggshell and semi-gloss are so 1950’s. Excellent flat paint on walls show the color better and is far richer than any other sheen.
